Prayer of Manasseh

By Vexen Crabtree 2012


Jewish in origin, this purports to be "the" prayer of Manasseh whilst he was in captivity"Bible Facts" by Jenny Roberts (1997), although exactly who it came to be in this written form is unreported.

Background: Manasseh, son of Hezekiah, ruled Judah, and this reign is described in 2 Chronicles 13. "He was a worshipper of Baal and other idols, and heavily involved in occult practices. He was captured by the Assyrians and in his affliction prayed to the God of his fathers for release. God heard him and Manasseh was released, subsequently restoring the worship of God to Judah."
